The content of this course is also included as part of the Citrix CMB-201-1I class, Implementing Citrix XenApp Platinum Edition Components. You can take either class in preparation for certification or for job role training. The CMB-201-1I class is not a boot camp or accelerated class. However, the CMB-201 class does have a more efficient delivery of the content that is contained in Citrix WANScaler 4.3 and Citrix Branch Repeater: Administration (CTX-1741-AI), Implementing Citrix Access Gateway 9.0 Enterprise Edition (CAG-200-1I), Implementing Citrix EdgeSite 5.0 (CES-200-1I), and Citrix Password Manager 4.5: Administration (CTX-1327-AI), by covering the bulk of these 8 days of training in a 5 day format. The class is shortened by removing redundant modules and focusing on the most important sections of the content. To see the outline and schedule for the CMB-201-1I class,
